"Only 12 people in Hollywood can green-light a movie. Everyone else sucks up to those 12." - Chris Meyer
Set in current day LA, Chris Meyer's uproariously funny debut novel, The 'Wood, is a raw and powerful portrait of the moviemaking industry, featuring players who compete with one another for relevance in a world where box office is king.
In The 'Wood, Anna is a young Hollywood film executive with a gift for picking box office winners. When she is passed over at work and in love, she begins to question herself. And when an escaped psychiatric patient crosses her path, she is intrigued by his insight. Anna finds herself surrounded by brilliantly vibrant and outrageously eccentric characters who, like many of us, are shaped by our pasts...or are they?
The 'Wood is a wild, hilarious, and touching story of the chaotic yet alluring inner workings of Hollywood, its manifold unique characters, and their parallel journeys toward self-realization and redemption.
